There is also the artist Mari Andriessen. He is mainly known for his statues, such as Amsterdam's resistance monument to the Docker. But many sons, daughters, nephews and nieces also take part in the arts or music. Music recordings, archive pictures and interviews are used to illustrate the Andriessen family.
